Time Out NY Because smuggling hooch up to the observation deck of the Empire State Building is frowned on, your best bet for sipping a cocktail while admiring the city's skyline is the lounge on the 65th floor of Rockefeller Center. You'll have to brave a queue of tourists to get on the elevator. The pricey drinks are nothing special, and the staff could be described as indifferent on its best day. But when the city lights begin to glow as the sun goes down in the distance, everything else just fades away.
